the body | care | speculating on futures︎︎︎Email

I inherit immigrant Italian heritage through my mother,
British settler heritage through my father.
I speak English, Spanish, Catalan,
the latter two languages gathered thanks to a
serendipitous culmination of place, relationships and circumstances.

the work is deeply involved in traversing the future of the Anthropocene, with a sensitivity to place and landscape to unearth physical, contextual and ecological reciprocity. There is no escaping the wild, arid desert landscape surrounding Mparntwe (Alice Springs) - which I have inhabited since 2020 - and my work reflects this place in its temporal, physical and social specificities.

I challenge audiences not to sit in grief and apathy but to acknowledge and realise our co-existence (participation within) the more-than-human world brings immense responsibility to the ecological crises of our own making. I am fascinated with the human obsession for solidity and order, despite we are living, breathing and walking across a planet which has always been in constant shift beneath our feet.

The work activates industrial materials in experimental ways, revealing complex relationships through the delicate handling of these junk-like objects with radical care and tenderness. By bringing our bodies into relationship with object, we bestow a sense of preciousness - precious plastic, precious metal, precious rubbish - and see our fragility, our unbalance and our clumsiness reflected back at us.

Offering futures
of hope,
residing within dystopic shells.

As a performer and an emerging dramaturg, I experience the deep care, respect and critical discussion artists undertake on a daily basis, inspiring my own curiosity and dedication. As a facilitator, I am privileged to work with young people across so-called Australia, in schools, town camps, detention facilities and remote communities, and am constantly buoyed by the joy, intelligence and power our young people hold.
